badly botched joke and fox news unloads on jon stewart in the feud that just won't die. media monitor is next. >>> closing arguments in the casey anthony murder trial began this morning and msnbc and fox news are taking it live, as is cnn's sister network hln. this tragic case, to me, is the most over covered trial since o.j. and i hate the way the media turned it in to a soap opera. the "new york times" media column tweeted if i were booking tv like bill maher the last person ever i would choose to be me. >> he stepped in it with these words. >> i think new jersey is more sophisticated because i'm from there. >> if it's missouri, no big deal. that's the sloping foreheads, the middle places. did i just say that aloud? >> yes. >> slow low sloping foreheads. carr got a lot of flak as a snob and he said the middle place that i come from i apologize for saying something so dumb on bill maher last night. it was a bad joke delivered badly. david carr is from minnesota. i doubt he's attempting to insult everyone who lives in the mid 'ole the country. >>> princess diana is digitally inserted
side's rhetoric squares very well with reality. let's get some perspective now from jon corzine, former democratic governor of new jersey, before that a u.s. senator and ceo of goldman sachs. currently he runs an investment firm mf global holdings limited. also carli fiorina, advisor to republican senatorial committee. also former senior campaign adviser to john mccain and before that ceo of hewlett-packard. let me start with you carly. you heard those sound bites. it seems like ending the corporate jet tax hike would be uncontroversial, but it seems like some of your fellow republicans are drawing a hard line on any revenue-raising proposals whatsoever. do you believe we can make a dent without doing that? >> i think first of all with regard to the rhetoric of millionaires and billionaires, the problem is when you look at the fine print what democrats are really talking about is raising taxes on a family that makes $250,000. and if you're a nurse and a fireman raising two kids, you don't feel very wealthy right now. so i think that's the problem. the rhetoric doesn't match the reality.
there are going to be folks on both sides. the question is, can you get enough votes? and i think jon is absolutely right. it's critically important that we raise the debt ceiling. i think, however, the president of the united states is not a freshman house republican. >> right. >> and as i said, this deal has been on the table for a long time. this problem has been on the table for a long time. i think we need the president of the united states, the leader of the free world, to step forward and lead here. and i think there will be enough bipartisan support to get a deal done. >> has he not been leading on this? i mean, with regards to his most recent conversations? >> you know, disappointingly president obama put forward a budget in february. this was his opportunity to lead, in my opinion that. budget was voted down 97-0. it tackled entitlement reform not a bit. he gave a wonderful speech in april which the congressional budget office said it couldn't score because there weren't enough specifics. the truth is, the president himself has never put a deal on the table. he's asked other
of the rest of the pack. jon huntsman, we can mention, he also has a pretty big fund-raising hall for a guy that not a lot of people know about. $4 million. we should mention half of that, though, is money he kicked in himself. he is part of a very wealthy family that owns a chemical company out there in utah. so not too surprising there. one thing we can tell you this morning is that president obama's re-election campaign, they are very proud of the fact that they have a roughly $490,000 contributors who have donated so far to the president's campaign. that is a number that they are tweeting out and getting out today. that is way more than he had back in 2007. of course, not too surprising back then. he was sort of a long shot for the white house. speaking of presidential runs. we should mention that we are getting reports and we are expecting to see thad mccarter, a congressman from michigan. he is well known up in michigan and well known in tea party circles. he is expected to file his paper work today to run for president. mccotter plays the guitar. so we might see him out on the campai
